Gumbo…it’s a staple for Louisiana. And you can get a taste of that…at a gumbo cookoff in Natchitoches. It’s part of the NSU Folk Festival, which is coming up July 20th at Prather Coliseum. Registration begins at 9 a.m. Festival-goers can begin tasting gumbo at 4:30 p.m. and judging starts at 6. The winners will be announced at 7:30.

There’s no entry fee, and there will be categories for professional chefs and amateurs in the seafood and poultry plus categories. A showmanship and people’s choice award will also be presented.

There is a slight catch…all gumbo must be cooked on site outside Prather Coliseum. Entries will be judged on appearance, aroma, consistency, texture and flavor.

For more information, contact Angela Kimbrough at awatkins002@nsula.edu, or call (318) 357-4332.
